HOME   People do good because they are human, not because they are religious! 

Do not give God any credit for the good they do, they did it!

 

TERRORIST FUNERALS
 
Muslims go the funerals of Islamist terrorists and often claim they are against terrorism. They say things like, “He is not a terrorist but he just made the wrong choices.”  That is watering down the truth about the man and being fake. It is trying to prevent people from condemning the man as a man of perverse faith and seeks to focus on his actions as if they are mere objects.
 
When asked if they are supporting the terrorist by honouring him at his funeral some say they are supporting the family by attending not the man. But would the family want you there or want your support if you thought you were not there because of the deceased? That would not be support at all but whitewash.
 
Yesterday's religious terrorists often become today's heroes. This in fact shows that the believers are happier about what those monsters did than they let on. The religious praise God for working inside those monsters and changing them. That is just a smokescreen. Guessing that God has forgiven and changed them and they have changed is a guess one has no right to make. The notion that God has transforming power and forgives people and that we are obligated to forgive those whom he has forgiven is too easily used to make saints and heroes of religious terrorists. The notion is too easily turned into a mask to hide it when those men or women are upheld preciously because of the evil they have done.

There is a thin line between making a terrorist feel forgiven by a non-existent God or a God who has not forgiven them at all and condoning the evil. Real forgiveness is about real proven people and real things.
